Update: It seems that the streaming issues are only getting worse as the event goes on.
Apple began its latest product event at 1:00 PM Eastern, once again promising to stream it live. Last time, the streaming didn’t go so well. This time people are having issues again.
In our own experience, we’re finding that the stream does work, but is choppy at times, and sometimes has to be manually refreshed.
The issues don’t seem to be as drastic as for the recent iPhone event, but there are still issues.
The Apple stream playing up for anybody else? Guess they haven’t learnt any lessons from last month!

This stream is even more unwatchable than the iPhone one. C'mon, Apple.

Anyone else having audio sync issues on the Apple stream?

Another day, another failed attempt by Apple to stream a live product launch. This is… disheartening.

There are plenty more where those came from. To be fair, there are also quite a few commenting on how well it’s working, so it’s clearly not messing up for everybody. There are also a lot of jabs of the “well, at least they got it right this time” nature.
The stream, of course, requires you use Apple’s web browser and operating system to even view. You would think that would be enough for them to make the experience seamless.
It doesn’t look like Denny’s is getting in on the fun again yet this time.
